Event description

Description

HAROLD OFFEH, with several performers, will stage a performative re-enactment of a selection of album covers that depict black men in a repose or lounging position, a popular trope for black male singers like Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross and Lionel Ritchie in the 1980s. Lounging is an extension of Offeh’s ongoing project, Covers, a project that explores the representations of black figures as depicted on album sleeves from the 70s and 80s.

This event is a part of FORUM, 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair's Programme of talks, performances and screenings. Entry to the talks is free for all the ticket holders of 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair. Further information on how to purchase tickets for the fair here.
